Memorable for: After she voluntarily left the show early to let her close friend Kristy Joe stay to have a chance with Bret, the producers deviously edited a montage for the reunion show that painted the two friends as lesbians. "I'm not gay," Aubry says. "And I'm still single. Yeah, ten years later, yay!"
Her life since the show
Aubry went on to appear on season 3 of LA Ink in 2009 and toured a bit as DJ A.F.I. However, since she was 17 she has suffered from Crohn's disease (which flared up during Rock of Love she suspects it was exacerbated by the production company ignoring her special dietary needs). Now, after six years in and out of the hospital, she writes an "Ask Aubry" column on the website Give Crohn's A Slap For Me, works a bit on freelance graphic design, and DJs in the virtual reality world Second Life when she's feeling too ill to leave the house. "I didn't know if I could back to DJing or not. But I heard about Second Life and people marketing [their music] on there, so I went in and go, 'Oh, this is weird,' and all of a sudden I just became one of the top DJs in Second Life, as myself."
If she had stayed and won, would she still be with Bret?
"I don't think that Bret and I had the chemistry for me to have won, and I'm very OK with the fact that I didn't. I wasn't like a huge Warrant fan." You mean Poison? "Yeah, I wasn't a huge fan of like -- oh, Poison, sorry. I liked C.C. [DeVille]… I just was never into Bret."
Is she still recognized on the street?
"You know, it's so funny because I was on LA Ink as a regular cast member for two years, and I still get people going, 'Oh my god, you're that girl from TV,' and I'm like, 'Oh yeah, LA Ink,' and they're like, 'You were on Rock of Love!' I was there for like eight days."
Would she do the show again?
No way. "It comes down to a moralistic humane situation." She claims that the production company, 51 Minds, had such an intense schedule that they wouldn't let women break to use the bathroom. "A girl really needed to go pee and she ended up having to pee in the driveway because they wouldn't let her in to go to the restroom. I thought that was kind of Auschwitzy. That was a little Holocausty for me, so I wasn't really into that." Because the on-set food was bad for her Crohn's, "I thought, 'If I had to go, what happens to me?' I was so afraid to have diarrhea on set that I took so much Imodium, it's probably half of what messed me up." (A spokesperson for 51 Minds declined to comment.)
